We compared our ancestries and remarked about the burden of the silent “G” in our names. We revelled in our ” Irishness” and
loved us all the more for it. Jackie boy, I will not forget.
My Deepest condolences to the entire family!
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
So many memories….
To the Murnaghan Family: very saddened about Jack’s death. It was a great adventure in Kirkland Lake to socialize with him, and even spend an evening at 693 Government Rd
reminiscing about the good old days.The Hughes and Murnaghan families have been linked form County Down Ireland to Kirkland Lake over many decades. Jack will be missed by many. May he rest in the arms of God.

I knew Jack through St Andrews east golf club.
My heart feels heavy with the loss of Mr.Murnaghan. He blessed many young men and women with a lot of the tools we all needed in the turf industry. I will never forget the time with him in the classroom and the wonderful friendship that existed well after the diploma. Jackalope you will be truly missed by all the little armpits that crossed your path.
Dear Blanche and family, although we have not been in touch for many years, we often think back to our Kirkland Lake days and remember the good times we shared together. We were very sad and sorry to hear that Jack had passed away. He was one in a million!

My sincere condolences to the Murnaghan Family
I just heard of Jack’s passing and it’s brought a tear to my eye.
I will miss the golf cart rides and having an occasional brown pop while on tour of the farm at our annual motocross race. I could sit there and listen to Jack’s stories forever. Kirkland Lake seemed like next door.
RIP my friend, you will be missed.
Richard and I were saddened to hear of your loss. Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. With deepest sympathy,
Sincere condolences to Jack’s family and friends. I remember Jack from KLCVI days and the many high school and KL reunions. Always had a big smile and happy to see everyone.
To the Murnaghan family, My sincere condolences to all of Jack’s family. I worked with him for about 7 years or so at the old Ontario Hydro. He was a hard worker and had a set of hands like a pair of vice grips. He was one of the good ones, Rest in Peace Jack, God Bless his Family.
We will all miss Jack’s large presence at every Murnaghan gathering. You are a great family and he must be so proud of you all. RIP, Jack.
So sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. We grew up with the Murnaghan’s in Chaput Hughes in the 50’s where they were great examples of everything that was good about the Irish. Jack and I worked together at Oakville Hydro where I was a summer student. I remember well, his sense of humour, sharp intelligence, sense of fair play and Irish good looks. In spite of all those qualities, he always remained a humble guy. My condolences to Jack’s wife, children, grandchildren and many friends. It is sad to see so many of the good ones going but wonderful to see that Jack has left a great legacy in his large family. Jack’s parents would be very proud.
To Blanche and family: I knew Jack from Seneca College, King campus days. He was devoted to his students and contributed a great deal to the success of the GCT program. He had a strong passion and desire to live life to the fullest. My sincere condolences to all. Heather Dockeray (nee McCarrol)
